I‘m going to be dropping these random vinyl rips to quench that extra thirst for more T.R.O.Y. material that we all get sometimes. Just on some bonus treat end of the night steez.
(fresh 320kbps vinyl rip, cell phone cam scan)
A1 Hyperdermic Needlz – Always (raw mix)
A2 Hyperdermic Needlz – Always (radio)
A3 Hyperdermic Needlz – Always (instrumental)
B1 Hyperdermic Needlz – Word Up (raw mix)
B2 Hyperdermic Needlz – Word Up (radio)
B3 Hyperdermic Needlz – Word Up (instrumental)
This one is pretty nice. I’m partial to the b-side, “Word Up”, because of the more mellow tone and the seemingly leisurely original flow that the second guy on the mic spits. And you can never go wrong with sampling Redman’s quotable, “no matter who you are, you still catch a bullet scar.” Don’t sleep on “Always”, though. It’s dope, ’nuff said.
This was executive produced by Thirstin Howl III (legendary Lo Life skillionaire who was supposed to be working on an album with Sadat X in 2008 and they were recently seen in the studio together, peep the link on his name)and released on “Cook Rock Records”. I believe this was their only release. I don’t know who’s who on these songs, but the record credits the writers as Napalm Bomb, Non DaScrip, and Breez, and was produced by Sonata.
Enjoy and expect a lot more of these ranging from known to unknown, but always dope.
And check the hyper links in the post. There’s an article on the history of Lo Life and a great interview with Thirstin in there.
